    How much hay should I buy?

    Hi, I have three piggies. I refill their hay rack whenever it starts running low and I just go buy more whenever I run out, but I figured I could probably save some time/money if I ordered hay to autoship in bulk. How much do you think 3 pigs would go through in a month?
